to hire the energy commission. california became the leader in energy efficiency. we put in tax credits and policies of the public utilities commission to favor alternative energy, independent power production. which is obvious today. when they promoted code- generation it was something very novel. 30 years ago. now you have a different name for a period in his third party power production using power in a driving way to recapture the most efficient way. innovation is important. i have to also, every time we heard the word innovation, i have to put a plug in for tradition. i have a very traditional education. i spent a lot of years in silence speaking latin up in the hills, living within the medieval framework. i do respect the past. we study it. if you are grounded in tradition, you feel quite confident in change and innovation. if you are insecure, you are very reluctant to embrace the unknown. i do think we need to in our education and politics, we have to have a new appreciation for our traditions and the patterns that describe our culture and our being as americans. having said all
the carbon tax, or the democrats are talking an energy tax, like a gasoline tax, kim is right. if they're going to do this, through the regulatory angle and outlaw in that way. >> paul: but then, james, why mention it so prominently, or was this sort after bait and switch for the environmentalists and mention it and in policy terms don't. >> there may be some bait and switch, but this is key. if he doesn't need to get anything through the congress, like the potomac swatch-- >> kim strassel. >> so well. they think that they have a court decision a few years empowers them to regulate carbon. they think they're off to the races here and this suggests to me that maybe the play is, with all of the business community expecting an approval of the keystone pipeline, the president might approve the pipeline, but then really ratchet down on the use of the oil going through that pipeline and i think he might be able to say to environmentalists. >> paul: how would they do that, they won't build this thing if they don't think there's a lot of oil that go through it. >> certainly the people that wan
while reasserting american global energy leadership. even balancing the budget will be easier with this initiative. congress and the administration should begin conversation about a broad-based carbon tax. this would give the right signals on energy sources and use. it could raise money to reduce the deficit, restore our infrastructure, speed and finance conservation. there are a number of other commonsense steps that would make progress on carbon pollution and energy conservation goals more significant. the epa should stop dragging its feet permitting old coal plants to continue to spew forth toxic waste, harming the environment and the health of our citizens. it is past time the clean air act reinforced. make sure there are proper safeguards for the cracking technology. make sure this reservoir of inexpensive gas does not undercut the addition of renewables to our energy portfolio. solar, wind, geothermal. dership on these technologies for a balanced energy portfolio and ultimately to reduce our carbon footprint. at each step, we should be looking to enhance energy conservat
. this is energy. this is jobs. this is economic activity. it will create revenue to help with the deficit and debt. this is about energy security, energy independence. so we don't have to get oil from the middle east. melissa: you know environmentalists don't like it even though we've taken care of a lot of problems and hurdles we put up in the first place. those have been taken care of. you know environmentalists don't like it. seems like the president is recommitted to battling climate change. he doubled down on green energy. this really doesn't fit into his portfolio of energy options. >> here's thing. there is better environmental stewardship with the project and without it. that oil coming to the united states means lower emissions then sending it to china. it actually means less emissions with the project. i think what we've shown today that the president needs to approve it because it is in the interest of the american people to do so. they don't want to get the energy from the middle east. they want to get it here at home and working with our closest friend and ally canada, and that if the
master while recording my debut album. how you ask? with 5-hour energy. i get hours of energy now -- no crash later. wait to see the next five hours. >> all aboard! >> right now, we have got a roaring bull market in the railroads. even the rails that we've been wary of because they have too much exposure to the troubled east coast coal markets. >> the house of pain. >> companies like csx and norfolk southern which we kind of gave up for a while are beginning to rally. rallying today big after they both reported upside surprises. last night csx up 87 cents, norfolk southern gaining $1.47. 2.2%. big gains all. meanwhile our fave, kansas city southern, a railroad stock i recommended back on december 5th delivered a completely stellar unbelievable number yesterday. and the stock continued its run today. closing within the striking distance of its high up more than 20% from where i got behind it less than two months ago. how can we isolate the strengths driving the rails? in other words, what's the engine behind this bullish locomotive/ how do we play it? when the railroads are doing w
in iraq, it was near the iranian border. just today on press tv, the iranian energy minister say this is share reserves. they want to move in. the context in iraq a kurdish conflict within are with the kurds have cut down their oil production from 100,000 barrels a day to 5,000 because they don't want baghdad to control it. so baghdad says, look, we found oil. we'll not be as dependent on the kurdish region. into this conflict america has been missing in action and iran is going to fill those voids if we stay asleep against political islam and its interests. melissa: steven, you make the great point this means that we should be more dependent on ourselves than ever before. we nd the pipeline, but also pushes the focus to fracking and to shale. i worry especially with the president's speech yesterday and with the turnover that we're about to see at the department of energy that maybe we're going to see a crackdown on fracking and on shale here in the u.s. that really goes against our own self-interests. >> well, it really would. it really would be a shock, melissa if the president
not realize this huge trade deficit we have. half of it historical has been energy products, mostly oil. if you get to the point where you are a self-sufficient producer -- i am glad you said north american energy independent. i always disliked the idea of this national energy independence. if you become energy self- sufficient, you eliminate half the trade deficit. this really changes the balance of payments and the overall shape and direction of the economy. could you speak to that? >> i for started talking about it two years ago. -- i first started talking about it two years ago. i started talking about what was possible with oil. i was a lone wolf in the woods at the time. since then, the bandwagon has loaded up. a lot of other people are saying, yes, it could happen, and it to be very important for america. particularly as it translates from energy to the general economy. there are more pillars' out there, housing, manufacturing -- they depend on recovery. the one that does not is energy, because the international demand is already there. it has been created by china, india. all ar
of these rail cars as another way to play the north american energy renaissance, one of my top ten themes for 2013. on tuesday morning, kansas city southern -- okay, that was last quarter. i know, off a very small base. and they said that twice off a small base. it is worth noting. they're doing a lot of frac too. mostly due to the increase in crude oil traffic coming from the bakken and canadian oil fields. last week when we heard from general electric, they told us the locomotive business was on fire with orders for hundreds of locomotives up from the year before. not only are we seeing more rail cars, but increase in the number of trains. first of all, you need to know that this is an incredibly cyclical industry. from 2006 to 2009, the rail car biz saw an 89% decline. that was suffering catfish era. they have been coming back, roaring back with a vengeance. >> buy, buy, buy! >> but industry backlogs are still about 30% below their 2006 peak. so we've got room here. however, if the economy falls through the floor again, listen, there's nothing you can do. rail cars get hammered, they a
sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. we cannot cede to other nations the power of jobs and technologies. we must claim its promise. >> strong, clear words from a president considered not green enough by environment lists in his first term. it's true, the president has a lot of work to do but instead of chastising him, maybe it's time for the green movement itself to reimagine what it ought to look like. the modern green movement must be an inclusive one and close the green gab that exists between national and environmental organizations and justice organizations. the environmental problems in inner cities and rural areas ok pied by low income communities of color deserve as much attention as the fracking. at the end of the day, the environmental problem that is happen over there, whether in the mall deese or usa, it will affect us. joining us, the nation magazine. victoria an nbc latino con tr contribut contributor. mike, the executive director of the schoolkill center and peggy executive director of west h

obama is making a moral case on the issue of climate. do you see energy issues, climate issues, being tackled in this next congress? a realistic goal? guest: energy policy broadly absolutely has to be part of the discussion. climate change -- after the severe storms with sandy recently and other harbour tragedies, i think the science is definitely confirming the fact that climate change exists and that we have to do things more responsible about it. my focus is on renewable energy. we don't have oil companies in nevada, but what we do have is an abundance of wind, solar, and geothermal. and i believe that those are alternatives that should be part of our overall energy mix to make us less reliance on fossil fuels and more energy independent in the long term. host: philadelphia, pennsylvania. our next caller is richard, independent line. caller: how are you doing? how are you doing, congressman? the question -- a couple of thoughts. i am interested in what puc is the area that productivity will occur. as far as when you talk about job creation and you coming from nevada, looking at the
. the path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult, but america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. we cannot cede to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and industry. we must claim its promise. that's how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national presence of forests and waterways, snow-capped peaks, crop lands. and how we will preserve our planet, commanded to our care by god. that is what will lend meaning to the creed our fathers once declared. host: the wall street journal on climate change has this. in flushing, new york, an independent. how are you? caller: good morning. i liked his speech, because it was different from the last one, because it concentrated on how to make america a better country rather than being the military police for the world. he was tempted to talk about north africa and al qaeda and all these things, but he wants to make america stronger. cost is too much. america is not respected, even spending all this money. how to make america big and strong, how to teach our kids, how to respect peop

at limited resources. climate change is a big issue you have been concerned on. the global energy needs are going to increase about 50%, that emissions are going to go up significantly primarily because of china and india and we could do significant harm to the u.s. economy i think by putting additional rules and regulations with very little impact on the global climate. in this tight budget environment with so many competing american priorities, i would ask you to give considerable thought into limiting significantly resources that would not help us as an economy, not help us as a country and not help us globally in perhaps the efforts you might be pursuing. i don't know if you have specific thoughts. >> i do. i have a lot of specific thoughts on it more than we have time now. and i'm not going to abuse that privilege. but i will say this to you, the solution to climate change is energy policy. and the opportunities of energy policy so vastly outweigh the downsides that you are expressing concern about, and i will spend a lot of time trying to persuade you and other colleagues of this.
: the drought situation, its impact on food prices and energy prices. our two guests will be here and our phone lines are divided regionally. let's go back to some of the numbers. production decreases and apples, asparagus, coffee, increases in peanuts, dry beans, barley, oats, wheat, and potatoes. guest: when you look at the crops that had significant decreases first, we had a mild winter, a late freeze behind that. that hurts the past zero crop, and asparagus, we have seen a continual decline in acreage. 9.7% decrease is acreage-base. poor pollination in washington state. grapefruit production is down 7.4%. we had high dropout rate-- high drought rates in florida. " weather affected strawberry production, primarily in california. host: chuck abbott, how does this compare to previous years? guest: on the major field crops, there was a major impact. wheat farmers were lucky in that their major variety is winter wheat. they were able to harvest the crop before the drought hit. because they were encouraged to grow more wheat, they escaped the brunt of the drought. corn production was down signifi
